Thank you for your reply, I did not check yet all your links, I am just
answering quick questions:
1) I just tried Iscan and it's the only one working so far. The ones you
mention, I did not use them before so I don't know them but I will look into
it and get back with a more complete answer.
2) AMD 3000+ 32 bit. You are right in assuming 32bit ;)
3) I know about Iscan-free and I did not use that. I installed Iscan
proprietary version or whatever it's called...
Yast requested that I install the non-free version before it could install/
activate the scanner. As opposed to SUSE 10.0 (which I tried but never used)
10.1 behave normally. It actually activated the scanner and the setup went
without a glitch. In 10.0 it was installing the driver but was not matching
it with the scanner... a long and screwed-up story that you don't need to
